AKHERE Godwin, Benin
Former Minority whip of the 7th House of Representatives, Hon. Samson Osagie, has described as ‘mischievous and unacceptable’ the purported call by some persons for the resignation of the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Odigie Oyegun.
He said Chief Oyegun has done nothing to warrant his resignation, adding further that those promoting the idea are out to destroy the party and set it on the part of ignominy which the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has threaded over the years.
“It’s significant to know that the APC cannot afford to be tampering with its leadership like the PDP as this will not make for stability.”
He called on all those nursing the idea to embrace the conflict resolution mechanism of the party to resolve all issue so that the party can support the new government it has formed to deliver on its mandated to Nigerian people .
“Chief Oyegun is a humble gentle man committed to the ideals of the change mantra of the APC who must not be rubbished by elements with vaunting ambition.
“As Nigerians we need an enduring democratic culture where’s all interest will coexist and be subject to national interest.
“Chief Oyegun has been a consistent progressive politician who will not do anything to dent his image.
“I urge his traduced to thread with utmost caution so that we can work together to bring about the change Nigerians are expecting from the new government”.
